When by MwsR (me)
When you feel down and out,
Make your soul jump up and about.
Do something kind for someone or something
It will surely make you sing.
Life is rewarding when we start to shine
Give to less fortunate be meek and kind.
If you can’t spread a rainbow
At least be the pot of gold, you know.
For whoever finds you will find a treasure
And whoever knows you, it will be a pleasure.
The world has a way of putting clouds of gray in a person’s day
Try and be the one who can lessen that in a small way.
When you are feeling down and out,
Take care of others and you will eventually stop your pout.
